This month, DPSDave.com, LLC partnered with Keyence Corporation to develop an innovative solution to a problem that the digital photo specialists encounter on a daily basis -- dust removal.

The partnership was a happy accident, blossoming when an engineer for DPSDave.com was overheard talking about his dust removal problems in a local coffee shop. A helpful patron directed him to Keyence, who specializes in eliminating dust in cleaning rooms where they manufacture microprocessors.

The engineer brought the idea to DPSDave.com President David Orr, who immediately recognized how much a dust removal system would improve the quality of digital pictures that they provide to customers.

"Here at DPSDave.com, we continue to work to solve the problems that affect digitizing images," said Orr. "This new method in removing dust is unique for our slide scanning process; one of many innovations we use to produce high-quality products at an unbelievably low price. This new breakthrough further separates our product from the competition."

Dust is an age-old enemy of quality digital images because it shows up as a black spot on slides. Brushing or blowing the dust off is useless because static electricity is what causes it to stick to a slide.

By partnering with Keyence, DPSDave.com experienced a major breakthrough in their dust removal system. The technology provided by Keyence allows DPSDave.com to determine the charge of static electricity that is on each slide and create the appropriate type ions that will remove the dust without altering the image.

The Keyence SJ-M high performance compact static eliminator system was integrated into DPSDave.com's automatic slide-scanning equipment. As a result of this new technology being implemented, Orr says that his company's slides are now virtually dust-free. In a mere second-and-a-half, crystal-clear images emerge from the scanner without a trace of dust.

To find out just how much this affects the quality of pictures, Orr scanned an untreated slide and blew it up on a large monitor to count the specs of dust that remained. He then used Keyence's technology to remove the dust from that same slide, and the results were staggering.

The untreated slide emerged with 300 specs of dust, while the slide that underwent dust removal only had 3 single specs. In basic terms, the dust removal technology is helping DPSDave.com produce images that are 100 times higher in quality than before they teamed up with Keyence.

Orr went on to say that he is excited for the overall quality enhancement that this technology is enabling him to provide to his customers. He also thanked Keyence Corporation for the hard work they invested to make this possible.
